Better Together: Our Partners and Recipients


Affiliated Agency: 

Affiliated agencies are local organizations and synagogues that satisfy the local agency requirements as specified in the "Requirements for Granting and Allocations," whether or not they receive a grant or allocation in any given cycle.  While we partner with many, local, national and international agencies, our "Affiliated Agencies" are at the core of what makes our federated community "Better Together".

Community Partners:

Community Partners include all Affiliated Agencies, as well as all other Jewish organizations and chapters which operate in our catchment area.  These agencies do not qualify for formal grants or allocations, but we actively seek partnership and collaboration with them.  We welcome their local leadership at all of our community building activities.  These agencies are essential to a strong Jewish community, here at home, in Israel and around the world.
